Dear El Segundo Families and Community Members,
ESUSD acknowledges the sense of grief and loss experienced after a tragedy. It is critical that we as a community support our families, our students, and one another to cope with these feelings. We want to make you aware of the resources available at ESUSD Families Connected to help you support one another and speak with your children. Please view the resources that offer age-appropriate videos, articles, and advice. Frequently, counseling is necessary to cope with feelings of depression or loss. The Miracle Mile Community Practice in El Segundo provides low- or no-cost counseling related to these issues. Additionally, ESUSD staff members may access the Employee Assistant Program through CVT. The Employee Assistance Program is available 24/7 and can connect you with up to six counseling sessions. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Jack Plotkin, ESUSD Director of Innovation and Student Support Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for resources for students and families.
